In the present day we’re pictures despatched in by Reneé Clermont in Edgartown, Massachusetts, whose firm Second Nature Designs does panorama design and gardening work.
I really like the over-the-top coloration of this container planting, with tall salvias that appear like Salvia ‘Wendy’s Want’ (Zones 9–11 or as an annual) and Salvia guaranitica ‘Black and Blue’ (Zones 7–11 or as an annual). These give the design nice peak and drama.
It is a great instance of the influence you may get by selecting simply a few nice crops and repeating them by the backyard. Right here Astilbe (seems to be to be Astilbe chinensis ‘Visions’, Zones 4–8) combines with a purple perennial salvia (Salvia nemorosa, Zones 4–8) to make a panoramic show.
The neat garden surrounding this dreamy flower backyard, crammed with coloration from perennials and annuals, offers a proper distinction to the extra casual flower planting.
On this container planting, Mandevilla (Zones 9–11 or as an annual) vines present peak and plentiful pink flowers. A variegated geranium (Pelargonium hybrid, Zones 8–10 or as annual) has pink flowers and showy yellow-margined foliage for much more coloration influence.
I really like the subdued, stress-free coloration scheme right here. Shades of purple, white, and burgundy make this an ideal spot to take a seat again and de-stress.
The large white flower heads of clean hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens, Zones 3–9) dominate the foreground on this backyard filled with the flowers of excessive summer season.
